Nollywood director Stanlee Ohikuare has released the making of his new movie “Behind The Wheels," after a video of Ani Iyoho burning on set went viral.
According to the director, Iyoho was set on fire, following strict professional guidelines. He also stated that the stunt was not a failure as Iyoho is very healthy.
The production team revealed the publicity stunt was aimed at activating media influence.
The behind the scenes video comes after a press conference which held at Diplomat hotel, 18 Oduduwa way off Isaac John Opposite Rumour club G.R.A Ikeja, on Saturday, July 30, 2016.
On Wednesday, July 27, an email was disseminated to various media houses, claiming that Iyoho was in the hospital after a fire stunt went wrong on set.
“Those emails came from us. We wanted to test the waters," the director of the film Stanlee Ohikhuare said at the press conference.
